The Montecito: Assisted Living with a Personal Touch

One day, you may need help with daily care for things like bathing, meal preparation, or remembering to take medication. In our Assisted Living program at THE MONTECITO, our registered Wellness Director will work with you and your physician to develop a service plan tailored to deliver care, promote your wellbeing, and support your continued independence.

Care is customized for you—from help with daily activities and managing medication to a 24-hour emergency call system. This is living, fully supported, that leaves you free to exhale, engage, and explore a world of opportunities.

We value the dignity of our residents at THE MONTECITO and put an emphasis on self-care with instruction, support, or assistance provided as needed. Our Assisted Living residents remain close to friends and stay very active in our homelike community-based environment. As a resident, you’ll also enjoy a beautiful private apartment, fine dining, activities, and services tailored to your interests and abilities. It’s all part of our philosophy to help promote wellbeing and maximize independence.


The search for the right senior living facility can be challenging. Whether you are looking for someone you love or for yourself, you need to find the right home.

It takes time and effort to locate the perfect senior living community for when you are older. Unfortunately, many seniors are quite reluctant to move to a Santa Fe assisted living facility and would rather stay home. However, if you find the place that fits, rest assured that the transition will be much smoother.
